IFIM’s Corporate Mentorship 

Mentoring is a proven approach to drive rich learning and development for both mentee and mentor. It tends to focus on the future, and broader skills for personal or career development of the mentee. The idea behind IFIM’s corporate mentorship program is that the more successful, senior partner, the mentor, wishes to pass on some of what they’ve learned to someone else who will benefit from their experience.   

The Academic intervention help the students develop their subject knowledge, and the mentoring process will help them understand the real-world implications. Mentees gets an opportunity to learn new skills and process’ followed in corporate world while studying at the institute. Students get to learn the practical approach of the theory under the guidance of the mentors. The entire process begins with Individual Corporate Mentors from the industry having one-on-one sessions with the students, and giving the specific task, aligned with corporate work culture. After understanding and guiding them in choosing their career options, the mentors help students identify the gap between their aspirations & the reality. 



Benefits of Corporate Mentoring to Mentee 


Receiving expert advice to achieve his/her dream

Through the corporate mentorship platform, the mentee gets an opportunity to speak his/her mind out in front of their respective corporate mentor. The mentors in turn guide & direct them to choose the best career path.

Discussing & sharing ideas

This program aims to give active learning experience, where mentee not just listen to the mentor but also put up their ideas and take on different corporate scenarios. Mentors actively share real life work cases which could be relevant to mentees.

Getting feedback & constructive criticism

Mentees get monthly performance feedback basis on the task given by the corporate mentors. Such ceaseless feedback helps them contour his/her goals, expectations, challenges, and concerns.  

Developing strength & overcoming weakness

As the session progresses the mentor identifies the strength and weakness of the mentee and provide specific tasks to overcome their fragility. This tweaks their self morale and transforms them into a more confident and better version of themselves. 

Opportunity to learn new skills & knowledge

Benefits of being a Mentor 

Recognition as a thought leader

Mentoring enhances mentor’s profile and the profile of his organisation among University students and staff. As thought leaders become more recognised as the experts in their field, their ideas and opinions carry greater weight, allowing them to increase their influence within the industry. 

Professional development

The role of a mentor is to encourage the personal and professional development of their protege by sharing their expertise and knowledge. The experience gained by mentoring someone can facilitate his/her own professional growth, making them more of an asset to their organization. Mentoring allows mentors to strengthen their coaching and leadership skills by working with individuals from different backgrounds and with different personality types.

Personal satisfaction of contributing to the society

The essence of mentoring is a sustained human relationship that shows young professionals that they are valued as people and important to society. They obtain personal satisfaction from making a difference to the career development of another person. 

Exposure to fresh management ideas

Mentoring can give a fresh perspective on mentor’s performance. Asking questions to the mentee often supports deeper insights on mentor’s own learning path and achievements. 

Enjoyment stipulation, challenge of working with millennials

Working with a mentee, particularly one outside of your own organization, provides an opportunity to practice necessary skills, including empathy and active listening.
